We've all been told at one point to let it go, to let all our fears and troubles fly, high up into the shimmering night sky. Well the past year I haven't been doing, or ever since the day I was born. I've been bottling things up inside, for a very very long time and I really didn't know what to do with myself, and I still don't. But lately over the past year, I've realized how much pain I was in but not as much as people who get abused and who has terminal diseases etc. I know I'm not suppose to take the simplest for granted, but you can't help and overlook those things, SOMETIMES. I mean over the past year there's been good and bad moments, and I know I should over look the good over the bad, but what happens when one bad thing outnumbers all the good ones. I mean that's what I don't get, life has that sense of ambiguity, that uncertainty when you don't know where you're going. It's like walking through life with a blindfold, not knowing where you'll end up or how long it's going to take. By saying that, I applaud blind people all over the world, there sense of courage, braving the world alone. It's not easy; there was this story I heard from my mom. It went a little something like this.

A man was on a train with his son, his son was 27 yrs old. His eyes  widened when he saw all the beautiful trees, and the railroad signs. One man couldn't help but ask the dad how old his son was. And of course he said 27 yrs old. The man then suggested that he should take his son to the hospital. And with a snicker the dad replied and said " We just came from there, my son just got eye surgery and got a new set of eyes" The moral of the story is that, you really shouldn't judge too quickly.

C'mon let's face it, we've all got problems, but we've also got to realize that there's people who have it worse. So you might ask where am I going with this? Or How does this relate to the title of the article. Well I'm getting there, as you all know it's already 2012. Well at midnight, I grabbed a buttload of balloons and wrote a letter. I wrote a letter to God, and at some point I was so close to breaking down, looking back it was a definitely a tough year. A VERY TOUGH YEAR. And instead of hating God. I thanked him, yeah that's right I thanked him. Why? Because I realized all those tought moments, made me the person I am today. As they would say, Pain is just fear leaving the body. Through the hardships in life, each one has made me a better person. I just hope that 2012 brings better days, but not all the time. A little struggle here and there definitely goes a long way. Well Happy New Year! And remember let it go, let go of the past, and look forward to the future. <3
